Welcome to St George’s Class!
We are a class of year 5 pupils in Upper Key Stage 2
Our class teacher is Mrs Okereke
Our teaching assistant is Mrs Ingram
We have a daily maths lesson that is taught using our school scheme ‘Third Space Learning’.
We also have daily literacy lessons covering either; punctuation, grammar spelling, guided reading or reading comprehension.
Each term we base our learning around a cross curricular theme (see term review). We begin our theme with a memorable experience day and end with an innovate week, where all of our learning for the term comes together.
PE day is on Monday.
We need to wear plain dark shorts, plain white T shirt and plimsolls or trainers.
A pair of plain dark tracksuit bottoms or leggings and our school jumper or a tracksuit jacket need to be worn outside in the colder months.
Our hair needs to be tied back if it is long.
Any jewellery we are wearing needs to be taken off and we must cover newly pierced earrings up with tape that parents provide us with ourselves.
Please make sure all PE clothing is clearly labelled.
We stick to the 6 golden rules that every class in the school tries to follow.
1) We are kind, gentle, inclusive and supportive
2) We listen carefully and follow instructions
3) We look after property
4) We respect and follow our school values
5) We are safe and honest so everyone can enjoy school
6) We work hard to achieve and shine brightly
We have a traffic lights system in class where ‘Green to go’ is rewarded and red and orange behaviours result in clearly defined and understood consequences.
Individuals are rewarded in class by winning raffle tickets. At the end of the week, 2 raffle tickets are pulled out of the box and we get to choose an item out of the class prize box.
On Friday’s a green-to-go star, Literacy star, and Maths star is announced in assembly and entered into the praise book. Their photo is displayed on our class Celebration board for the week.
Our whole class rewards for good behaviour are negotiated with the class teacher at the start of every term. We vote for one of the class suggestions. When we have moved 8 bees onto the honeycomb, we can look forward to our end of term reward!
Due to current restrictions, children are expected to read and practise their spellings and times tables up to 12x12 every night.
Children may also wish to extend their learning beyond the knowledge organiser if they have a specific interest in the topic.
Please use the knowledge organiser as a starting point for any extra study. The information on these sheets should be easily recalled by the children once the topic is completed
If you wish to speak to me, please call the school office and request that I phone you back to arrange a more mutually convenient time.
Supporting Your Child's Education
This school year a key focus across the school is reading. To help develop your child’s reading skills as well as written and spoken language a fostering of a genuine love for books and reading is vital in the progress they make in their learning journey. In support of this it is critical that you as a parent or guardian encourage children to read regularly at home, and provide opportunities for them to be heard when reading.
The school has recently partnered with local libraries to provide additional book selections that will be delivered to school. Pupils can take these additional books home and record completion in their reading record books.
